   Laurentiis.  (2013) The Boston Marathon bombing; Bob Harper; Pierce...  

    April 22, 2013
    7:00 - 11:00am PDT  

7:00am
only brief periods, officials say, because of his medical condition, and he's responding mostly in writing because he has a hard time talking. officials say today's bombing charges will include a description of a still unreleased fbi video. according to those familiar with what it shows, dzhokhar tsarnaev can be seen removing his backpack at the spot where the second bomb was placed, and acting very differently from those around him when e first bomb blew up. >> this suspect took the backpack off, put it down, did not react when the first explosion went off, and then moved away from the backpack in time for the second explosion. >> federal officials say in the hours after the fbi released photos of the bombing suspects thursday night, investigators had not yet matched any names to their pictures and, in fact, did not even have the tsarnaev brothers in any terrorist data base. only after the older brother was killed in the late night shootout in watertown were agents able to check his fingerprints and put actual names to their case.
7:01am
fbi agents are seeking to interview all the family members and friends of the two brothers, including the wife of the older one, tamerlan. her lawyer says he is talking to federal authorities about how to proceed. matt? >> pete williams, thank you very much. edward davis, commissioner of the boston police department, joins us now. commissioner, nice to see you. good morning. >> good morning, matt. >> you've got a suspect in the hospital in critical, but stable, condition. unable to speak, but answering preliminary questions in writing. based on those early answers, are you 100% confident there is no future or further threat to boston in terms of accomplices or unexploded devices? >> this is very early in the investigation. we're satisfied that the two main actors, the people that were committing the damage out there, have been either captured or killed.
7:02am
there's still an open question as to exactly what happened in this investigation and there are enormous investigative resources being poured into that right now. we can't say with 100% certainty that -- anything actually at this point. >> do you know if this suspect has in any way given any indication of what the motive was for these attacks? >> no. it would be impossible for me to discuss anything about the suspect or the investigation. that's very sensitive and it's very much in play right now. >> let me ask you, take you back to thursday night. had the tsarnaev brothers not done what they did in killing officer collier and then carjacking that car, do you think the boston police department, the fbi, federal officials were close to capturing these two? or if they hadn't done that, might they have quietly slipped away? >> matt, i'm satisfied that once those pictures were released and these people were still in the country, there was no question we would capture them.
7:03am
>> let me also ask you about friday evening. the decision to lift the lockdown. i know this is a question you probably are going to be facing. what was that based on, that decision? i mean, as it turned out, shortly after the lockdown on watertown and boston in general was lifted and people were told they can go about their normal lives but to remain vigilant, this suspect was found about a block or two outside the perimeter. so was it the right decision to lift that lockdown? >> i believe it was at that time. that was a decision that was made in consultation with mayor thomas menino, governor patrick. every single one of the law enforcement partners that were involved in this operation, we examined all of the facts, and came to the conclusion that at that point in time, at that juncture, we felt that either the suspects had fled the area or there was not enough specific information to keep the city in .
7:04am
. . . . . . our inquiry. >> but based on the fact that the government of russia contacted the united states, whether the fbi found something or not, do you think the boston police department should have been made aware of that situation, a guy like that living in your community? >> well, let me stress, matt, i >> let me stress, matt, i don't have specific information about
7:05am
the international conversations that were going on, but i can tell you we are looking at everything and that will be certainly part of the review. >> boston police commissioner ed davis. thank you very much. >> thank you, sir. now here's savannah. we are learning more about the suspects this morning as investigators dig in to their past for clues. today jeff rossen is in boston with that angle to the story. jeff, good morning to you. >> reporter: hey, savannah. good morning to you. the bombs went off a block from where i am standing in boston. police launched a dragnet to find whoever did it. to find the suspect. a lot of people thought the suspects must be on the run and on the hideout. that's not the case. they went back to their normal lives with the younger brother even going back to college like nothing ever happened. in the days after the bombing, suspected terrorists dzhokhar
7:06am
tsarnaev was hiding in plain sight. friends say the 19-year-old was back in his dorm room here at u mass dartmouth and reportedly went to a party with pals. >> you know him pretty well. his friends saw him at the gym on tuesday. one day after the bombing. >> when i would say hi to him i talked about how it was crazy we had a bombing in boston. >> reporter: you said that to snim you talked about the bombing. >> he said it is sad. the next day jahar tweeted i'm a stress-free kind of guy. tamerlan phoned their father in russia to say everything is fine. >> these two knew enough to stay in place, live their lives as they normally did, nothing to attract attention to themselves. >> reporter: they came from russia ten years ago jahar was a
7:07am
star wrestler, tamm rerlan was bongser and deeply religious. they prayed together at this mosque. >> they never exhibited violent behavior. >> reporter: in 2011, the fbi questioned tamerlan at the request of foreign authorities who suspected he had ties to radical underground groups, be i the fbi found no link to terror. then after a trip to russia last year, a play list of jihadist videos was posted on a you tube channel tamerlan apparently set up. but jahar's friends say he showed no signs of extremism. >> i can't stress to anyone how normal of a kid he was and how mind blowing it is someone so normal could live such a crazy double life almost. >> reporter: investigators are trying to piece this together. two members of congress want to know if the fbi missed something when they questioned tamerlan
7:08am
two years ago. now asking for a full review of that investigation. >> thank you. >> the city of boston a huge sigh of relief over the weekend and people are showing their support for the victims of the tragedy and the heros who apprehended the suspects. wonderful signs of support at the red sox game over the weekend. they unfurled this huge american flag over the green monster. and then -- >> a surprise, neil diamond came out to sing the red sox anthem "sweet caroline." he showed up and asked to sing apparently. think jonny gomes put the emphasis, had the names of the victims. >> including the m.i.t. police officer and the marathon was held in london over the weekend and solidarity of the people with boston at that as well. >> people wore black ribbons to
7:09am
remind people that it happened in boston in solidarity. >> we saw it acrossing events, nascar, hockey games. >> member of a crowd in london held up a sign that says run if you can. walk if you must, but finish for boston. >> grit sentiment. another major story we are following this morning. rising floodwaters along the mississippi river in the midwest. we are seeing dramatic rescues and more rain is on the way. we will talk to al about that in a second. but right now john yang is in clarksville, missouri. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, matt. the residents of clarksville are waking up to discover the river has risen quite a bit overnight. the good news is their frantic sandbagging efforts are protecting the downtown from the rising waters. across the midwest this morning, waters are rising fast. here in clarksville, they have had a lot of practice at this. it has flood at least four times
7:10am
in the last 18 years. this year, it came early. >> it came very fast. faster than 2008 and we don't have the help we had in 2008 so everybody's pulling together and doing the best they can. >> reporter: at least three people have died in floodwaters, including an indiana man whose pickup truck was swept away by the rushing waters of a swollen creek near indianapolis. >> good enough to let his dog out. we got the dog. he didn't make it. >> reporter: the army corps of engineers shot locks and closed rivers to shipping traffic. near st. louis more than 100 barges. >> ten barges sunk or partially sunk in or around the channel. >> reporter: across the region, roads closed and hundreds of acres of farmland under water. a result of last week's storms that dumped a month's worth of rain in a matter of hours and
7:11am
it's just the beginning. >> it could take over a week to get that water to make its way to over areas especially through the mississippi valley. >> reporter: for many it is part of life on the river. in clarksville, douglas said the deck of his house felt like the deck of a ship. >> when the river's low it is a beauty. when it is high it's a beast. >> reporter: officials say this is probably about as high as this water is going to get here, but it's all moving down river, cresting in st. louis probably tomorrow and south of there later in the week. matt? >> john, thanks. as i said we will get to al's forecast in what couple of minutes. >> natalie is following a story out of washington, a sad story. >> another sad story. a deadly shooting overnight south of seattle. five people were killed in an apartment complex on sunday night including a suspect who was shot by police at the scene. investigators are looking to what caused the gun fire to break out. now to the latest on the recovery efforts in west, texas,

7:13am

boston bombers was carried out in a way we haven't really seen before, right in the middle of a digital revolution. the internet, social media playing key roles. while it was successful, it also highlighted some problems we have to deal with. we're going get into that with the influential head of google. and then we'll take a turn and see how motherhood is treating jenna bush hager a whopping nine days in. we'll find out more about her experiences and see some new pictures of baby mila. but we're going to begin this half-hour with some of the legal issues surrounding the arrest of the sviving bomb suspecter dzhokhar tsarnaev. lisa, good morning to you. we understand he's responding to the extend he can in writing. and that officials a citin what's known as the public safety exception so that they don't have to read him his miranda rights right away. as time passes, does the justification for that exception grow weaker? are they on ls strong ground? >> it sure does, because as you know, miranda rights are a bedrock constitutional principle. we all have the right to remain
7:29am
silent, t get an attorney and be advised of those rights. the public safety exemption is a very narrow exemption. there has to be an imminent threat to the public. it certainly seems less imminent. >> don't officials who say the terror is over, don't they kind of undercut that argument, and does it really matter in the end? >> this is certainly an argument that's going to be handed to this defendant's defense attorney when that time comes. there have been contradictory statements made that there is no public threat, there is no ticking bomb, thank goodness, apparently, based on what we know so far. so we're giving them an argument to use later. >> the issue is, the questioning that's permitted without miranda is very narrow in scope, correct? >> yes. it's about what the public threat is. it's not all of theasis and the background and the motive questions. >> that's what brings me to this issue that's percolating in washington now. there are some national security republicans who say we should treat this suspect not as a criminal suspect but as an enemy combatant so there could be a more wide range in the interview. >> enemy combatant arose in times of war.
7:30am
when we capture somebody onhe battlefield. as the nature of war has evolved, we're now in a war on rror, some are saying that finition should be changed. but this is an american citizen captured on american soil, an american crime. i don't see him as an enemy combatant. i don't think the cous will either. >> they would have to have some connection to al qaeda order to meet that classification. >> well, that's right. i don't see that here. do we want this to be a creative precedent, setting case, or do we want to treat him like the hundds of other terrorists w have been successfully tried on american soil. >> great to have you here. thank you. we'll switch gears now,et a cck of the weather from al. >> today's weather is brought to you by centru the most recommended, preferred and studied multi-vitamin brand. >> got a good-looking group here. very nice. let's see what we've got for you. we are talking about some rough weather. okay, rapid city, you've had the snowiest april on record.
7:31am
you're heading for a previous april record, 30.6 bark in 19 -- back in 1970 now as we look to chicago, record rainfall for april. so far in april, 18.74 to date and we'll come very close to breaking that record back in 1947. down in miami, they're looking at a wet april as well. record rainfall, 10.43 inches in 1960. we are going to bust that today, no doubt about it. rest of the country, we expect to see a beautiful day through southern california. we're looking at a beautiful day morton son nor clouds around the view from san bruno mountains looking off to the east. temperatures climbing quickly. 80s by lunchtime. eventually, about i 3:00, 4:00, this afternoon, upper 80s and low 90s inland. upper 70s to mid-80s, inner bay. today should be the warmest day

7:33am
hollywood agent jame toth, after their arrest friday morning. according to an incident port, the o were pulle over after their vehicle was observed weaving in and out of traffic lanes. after performing a field sobriety test on toth who was driving, a trooper placed him under arrest. withspoon refused orders to wait inhe car, telling the trooper she was a u.s. citizen and that she was alled to stand on american ground. while being placed in handcuffs, witherspoon was described as resistant. the report cites witherspoon saying to the trooper, "you're about to find out who i am, and you're going to be on national news." toth washarged with dui and failure to stay in the lane, while witherspoon was charged with disorderly conduct. in a written statement, witherspoosaid i clearly had one drink too many and i am deeply embarrassed about the things i said. i was disrespeful to the officer who was just doing his job. i have nothing but respect for the police and i'm very sorry
7:34am
for my behavior. >> reese wherspoon is an actress who has been known as something of america's sweetheart. i think that something like this does tarni her reputation, and it could hurt her in her career. >> the actress shot to claim after the success of movies like "legally blonde" and has gone on to star in a string of films like "sweet home alabama." in 2005, she won an academy award for her role as june carter cash in "walk the line." >> baby, baby, baby, baby. >> in the past, reese has tried to be a role model,aying at t the 2011mtv movie awards -- >> for all the girls out there, it's possible to be a good girl. i'm going to try to make it cool. >> but this morning, that might not the message reaching her many fans. reese walked the red carpet for a movie premiere here in new york city last night, b she did not discuss the incident she didn't even do interviews. in her statement, she alsoaid it was a scary situation and she
7:35am
was frightened for her husband, but she added that is still no excuse, matt. >> but she came right out and owned it, which i think helps her a little bit. jason, thankou very much. appreciate that. oming up next, we're going to talk to the head of google about the role of social media in the hunt for the boston bombing suspects, both the good parts and the negatives. that's right after this. both of us aually. our pharmacist recommended it. and that makes me feel pretty good about it. and then i heard out a study looking at multivitamins and the long term health benefits. and what do you know? they used centrum silver in the study. makes me feel even better, that's what i take. sorry, we take.

director jared cohen predicted. their new book is called "the ne digital age." nice to see you. it'sll about how the digital world is changing our lives, our safety, our businesses, but let's look at it in the context of what we've all justived through over the last week. first, the bombings themselves and then the investigation. what was the digital impact? >> well, this was a terrible tragedy by any measure, and yet the digital world helped a lot. after the police figured out rohly who they were, they released videotapes and a million people looked for these people. and i'm sure that really spooked them. >> so these member of the digital community became quasi-law enforcement agents. >> if you're locked down in boston, what else are you going to do? you're going to look. >> but it's interesting, you immediately highlight the positive. jared, let me bring you in here, because some peoe might say the digital world may also have been where these brothers radicalized their views, where they may -- we don't know -- may have learned how to build some of the devices that they eventually exploded at the
7:41am
